Research continues to show that regular massage therapy improves range of motion, reduces recovery time, increases muscle tone and flexibility. And, since massages act as an “auxiliary heart” by increasing circulation, it gets rid of toxins and other metabolic wastes generated by a byproduct of strength training. Not only will you feel better, you will recover quicker and keep your joints healthy and happy – for the long haul!

Here at Allegro, we have four therapists available with a combined experience of over 60 years!

Massage types
Relaxation Massage
(55 minutes hands on for 60 minute massage)

One of the primary goals is to relax the entire body. However, this massage goes beyond relaxation. Relaxation (general) massage increases blood flow and oxygen through the layers of muscle tissue. Techniques using compression, lengthening, and kneading soften the muscle tension which relieves stress and improves flexibility. Flushing the body with water after this massage is important to eliminate toxins and restore hydration in the muscle tissue.

Deep Tissue Massage
(55 minutes hands on for 60 minute massage)

Deep tissue massage uses a treatment approach to restore normal movement in stiff muscles and joints. Techniques are targeted toward breaking down adhesion’s that are causing pain, limited motion, and inflammation in the muscle and fascia (connective tissue). Recovery after this massage is essential to rest and let the tissue heal. Avoiding heavy exercise and activity for 12-24 hours is recommended for an effective response to treatment.

Sports Massage
(55 minutes hands on for 60 minute massage)

Sports massage therapy is recommended for anyone participating in regular physical activity- from the elite professional to the everyday athlete, and focuses on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive movements. Techniques are targeted toward the muscle-tendon junctions increasing range of motion and optimizing performance. Routine sports massage every 1-2 weeks will decrease risk for injury as well as improve recovery time between activities
